“Many of these legendary historic hotels were built for another purpose such as a former castle, palace, national bank, original corporate headquarters, army post officers housing, manor house, and even a former department store from the 19th century,” said Lawrence Horwitz, executive director, Historic Hotels of America and Historic Hotels Worldwide. “These iconic historic hotels demonstrate the tremendous stewardship of their owners, leadership, and employees in preserving these wonderful historic treasures and the many centuries of stories of the people that previously lived, worked, socialized, or visited. Many are tremendous architectural and heritage landmarks. There is much to discover, explore, experience, and taste in and near these wonderful historic hotels.”
